When one is taken to court you oftenly hear that he was released on sijui cash bail,bond,surety or someone even deposited a title. What exactly are these bail and bonds and why bail or bond in a particular case? The one time I was apprehended was for loitering after hours when drank back in 2002. We were many so in police cell we had been advised tusipatie polisi 1k...twenda kwa mbao Na tukisomewa tukubali. Jaji akatupatia fine ya 500 each. Shida tulikaa holding cell yet ulikuwa Na kitu kaa 2k kwa wallet majamaa wanashughulika kulipia mtu wao. By saa tisa hivi majina zikaitanwa....wenye wamelipiwa....bjurmann,abcd,etc. Kutoka nikaona black Maria kuuliza nikaambiwa huyo inapeleka ma serious criminals Na wenye hawakupata fine huko milimani Nax. I swear from that day I hav tried to stay on the right side of law coz I so hated that experience. So bonds and bail..what are they and when are they given?
